RETAINER PROGRAM DETAILS:
3 month minimum commitment. At the end of 3 months, we will re-evalaute the program you are to ensure the number of hours are fitting your business needs. After that, we can move to 6, 9, or 12 month commitments.
Each retainer includes a set amount of work (or for businesses with more variety - a set number of hours) agreed up on by both parties. Overage in time or additional projects outside of the agreed upon scope will be billed at our standard hourly rate.

A retainer fee is like a monthly fee. Its perfect for those who know that they will need design services throughout the year and want to reserve a creative professional's time. Since its purpose is to retain the designer/photographer, it is paid up front each month before work is ordered. Essentially, you are "pre-ordering" time versus a service. Since we will anticipate a preset number of hours of work from you, we will block out our schedule with the appropriate time each month. This gives us the ability to plan our workload accordingly. Which gives you the certainty of a pre-established amount of work each month without having to worry about what else is "in the queue" ahead of you. Its more efficient for all involved.
